you are all geniuses and you are all beautiful
you don’t need anyone to tell you who you are
you are what you are
get out there and get peace, think peace, live peace, breathe peace, and you’ll get it as soon as you like

in liverpool england, john lennon was born on october 9, 1940.
he would have turned 66 today.

more than any other artist to date, john lennon spoke from the heart. constantly challenging himself, searching and externalizing the absolute vitality and fear of growing up, he used his life lessons turning them into personal creativity providing his own cathartic process that shared an honesty ahead of time.

…i just believe in me…

…i dont expect you to understand…

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
